| Events in Gosforth | 10 Places to Stay

Gosforth lies north of the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in north-east England, beyond the Town Moor and Jesmond districts. It is now a suburb of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and part of the Tyne & Wear conurbation area but originally, it was a separate town in Northumberland with its own Town Hall and council. It was merged into the northern part of the county borough of Newcastle and absorbed into the city in 1974 when the new county was created, both of which were moves fiercely opposed by many local inhabitants. The name is thought to have originated from the name Gese Ford which means ‘ford over the Ouse’ referring to a crossing over the river Ouse which runs close by. The parish church of St Nicholas was built in 1799 and is thought to have been a replacement for one demolished in the same year which in turn is thought to have been a replacement for an earlier one thought to date from Saxon times but there are no records of the first church. Gosforth today is an area consisting of several large development parks and provides a range of suburban style housing and executive apartments for commuters to the nearby city. Newcastle Great Park is the latest development. The Regent Centre is a large business complex in which HM Customs & Excise, the Open University and other notable organisations are located.
